BIS Seeks Comments on Deemed Export Advisory Committee Recommendations

On May 19, 2008, the Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) published a notice in the Federal Register seeking public comments on the Deemed Export Advisory Committee (DEAC) Recommendations. Specifically, BIS is seeking comments on whether the scope of technologies on the Commerce Control List that are subject to deemed export licensing requirements should be narrowed, and if so, which technologies should be subject to deemed export licensing requirements. In addition, BIS is seeking comments on whether a more comprehensive set of criteria should be used to assess country affiliation for foreign nationals with respect to deemed exports.

Comments must be received no later than August 18, 2008. The DEAC report may be accessed here.
